Way to Go Kristin!!!

Gold medal in the Olympic Cycling Individual Time Trial for Idaho's own Kristin Armstrong!!! What an outstanding performance!!! Congratulations Kristin!!!

This is a tremendous accomplishment for Kristin, but should also have very positive benefit on Idaho. This excellent result, combined with the nationally recognized junior cycling development program (the BYRDS), our nationally recognized race calendar (Twilight Criterium & BYRDS Stage Race) , and the soon to be completed velodrome and cycling park can help make Idaho one of the cycling centers of the country. Greater cycling awareness should also make cycle commuting safer as well.

More local perspective from the Idaho Statesman, the Idaho Business Review, Red State Rebels, and indirectly from KTVB.

Update 8/14/2008: Boise celebration with Kristin on Saturday August 16.
